The Sunken Place — Tuesday, March 7, 2017
Written By Brandon C. Kesselly
This poem was inspired by the movie Get Out.
The Sunken Place
The hole down which you fall
After moments of great shock
Like you’re drowning in your own sorrow
Your own suffering
Your own tears
That helpless feeling you get
When you can’t change what’s happening around you
You’re powerless and you fucking know it
Clawing desperately to resurface
But your fears
Weigh you down
Like rocks in your pockets
You can’t hold your breath much longer
Can you empty your pockets in time?
Or are you stuck forever in
The Sunken Place?
